Please only contribute one article per edition of the carnival. I know I wasn’t very clear with that rule early on, but I tried to make a note of it this time around on the submission page. Enacting this rule actually benefits both of us – it makes the carnival look less spammy and more [...]

ProBlogger.net had a contest the other day where readers submitted little catchphrases and icons for the Google PageRank fiasco. Now that the contest is officially over, I’d like to toss my hat into the ring. Ladies and gentlemen, my image: Feel free to save this and post it on your own site if you’d like. [...]
